This Book is a Tort Itself
on February 15, 2004
This is biased, pro-plaintiff, and hard to follow. It is a self-justifying, defender of the out of control legal profession. Only 60 pages are devoted to the defense. There is nary a word, beyond brief dismissal, of the devastation wrought upon our besieged Nation by the profession. There is nary a word about changing the unconscionable 80% error rate in tort litigation. There is nary a word about the wackiness that passes for judicial decision making, mind reading, fortune telling, etc.
If you have poor vision, good luck. A very large fraction of the text, often the most important point, is in tiny font in the footnotes. Its physical content discriminates against anyone with poor vision or who is out their twenties. The language is filled with double negatives, inscrutable constructions, undefined latin phrases. Is English the native language of either the author or his editor? My 7th grade English teacher would have made the author stand in the corner.
Memo to the editor: ban footnotes containing more than a reference. Ban double negatives. Take an English as a second language course, for Pete's sake.
